The Philadelphia Eagles take on the reigning AFC East champion New England Patriots in a Monday Night Football matchup that will constitute the second preseason game for both teams.

The Patriots already have announced (h/t NFL.com) that many of their key starters—Tom Brady, Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez and Jerod Mayo—will not be playing in tonight's contest. For the Eagles, Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy, DeSean Jackson and company likely will see very limited snaps, with the goal being simply to get some snaps in live action and not get hurt.

Kickoff is set for 8 p.m. Follow this blog for all the updates of the game, as the 1-0 Eagles will get set to take on the 1-0 Patriots in a little more than an hour.
